Abstract

Introduction 1.1 This technical note has been prepared for the purposes of providing an overview of what is understood by the term ‘tranquillity’ within the landscape profession and to inform any future discussions and actions on the topic. From the outset it is evident that the subject has a number of facets. The term has been used for varying purposes across the countries of the UK and there is no objective guidance on the subject or a consistent application of approach. The subject area is also evolving, with interest in how it might relate to aspects of health and wellbeing. 1.2 There are clear links between landscape and tranquillity and thus it is entirely appropriate for the landscape profession to provide an overview and take a lead in the development of the subject. It is envisaged that this Note forms the first stage in a process which might ultimately lead to the publication of further guidance or a policy position. 1.3 Tranquillity is a subject that is already well established as a concept in the public understanding. Thus rather than the promotion of a new topic or theme in the public realm, this commonplace concept requires clarification for the purposes of professional use in writing and applying policy. Broadly Engaging with Tranquillity is a research document identified in this document that is created and authored for the Landscape Institute.
